What’s the best paint or finish for a vibrant purple dresser?

When you’re thinking about painting or staining your dresser, you’ve got a ton of options. But if you’re aiming for a bright and vibrant purple, here’s what you need to know.

  1. First off, make sure you prep the surface by sanding and priming it. This step is key to making sure your paint sticks well and avoids chipping or peeling later on. Here’s how to prepare furniture for painting to learn more about the proper way of preparing furniture.
  2. For the paint or stain, go for a high-quality acrylic or latex paint with a glossy finish for that bold, standout look. Plus, it’s tough enough for daily use.
  3. If you’re leaning towards a stain, choose a water-based dye or stain that’s meant for wood furniture. These kinds of dyes pop more and let the wood’s natural grain peek through.

Check out the many types of paint for furniture and the best wood stains for furniture to help you decide which type is the best for your next project. You can also do a test run on a small spot before going all in on painting or staining the whole dresser.
